Lentils and carrots creamy soup is one those delicious comfort food, pleasant all year, both hot or cold. I love to prepare it with red lentils that have a very delicate flavor and are particularly, suitable for recipes like this.
Cumin is one of the keys to this recipe. It contains many essential oils and a large amount of iron, important both for physical well-being and for the metabolism balance. It has many antioxidants that improve digestion, stimulate the immune system and promote detoxification of the body.
Lentils and carrots creamy soup is perfect, especially if served with rustic bread.
